Excerpt: I bought two of these to back up my hard drives, based on having bought two 500 Gb Transcend StorJets a couple of years ago. The smaller drives are great but I am running out of memory so needed to upgrade. No problems. Would recommend without qualification.
Excerpt: I am still trying to figure out how to use it. not many computer skills and the instructions that it came with leave you wanting. I have a lot of movies and even more music and triple the number of songs and that's how many photos I have on three different computers and two I-phones.
Summary: Only gave it a 4 star because I need to see how long it will last. I'll upgrade it to 5 stars after a while if it continues to work as it does now. I like Transcend products but they cost more. Doesn't seem to be too many sales or deals on them.
Summary: I bought this for external storage for my Xbox one. It is not a 7200 RPM drive, but it works just fine. I think the price was awesome, and it looks pretty cool as well. Update: 12/29/2015 - After using this for a few days, it seems not to work well with my Xbox One after all.
Good Hard drive, could have been better with consistency in tranfer speed

Summary: Has worked without any problems so far. The only downside is the File Transfer Speed appears to be decreasing day by day. Originally it was transferring files at 110Mb/Sec. It is half filled and now the Transfer speed has gone down to 10 to 95MB/Sec.
Excerpt: I am an amateur professional photographer, and I am using this external hard drive to back up my files. The transfer rate is super fast, and the capacity is great, too. I bought it because I like the color, and I like that it can be dropped without data loss.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Summary: Well, I own this external HD for almost two months and initially I was about to give it five stars. It happened to use this brand of external hard drives since many years ago (along with WD brand HDD) and I never had a problem. They proved reliable.
